Memphis Lights

Memphis, a team that got no national exposure this past season is making sure they take in all that they can get this post season.

After defeating the #1 seeded Spurs 4-2, Memphis came out yesterday and handed the Thunder a beat down in Oklahoma City.

Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol combined for 54 points in the winning effort.

Memphis is doing all of this without their star, Rudy Gay.

Kevin Durant tried all that he could to keep the game close but silly turnovers and wildly possessions ended up costing OKC the game.

Watching Memphis, right now at least, is like watching basketball at its greatest. The Grizzlies players are playing their role whether its Tony Allen playing defense or Mike Conley pressing the ball up court. OJ Mayo has shown patience on the offense and the low post game of Gasol and Z-Bo have been terrific. Only 7 turnovers in yesterdays game.

Call me crazy but this isn't seer luck we are seeing. This is looking like another upset in the brewing.
